looking for some help with finding some fine dining establishment in the triangle area.
group of 5 with all of us being foodies. its a surprise for my sister and her husband's 20th anniversary.
we r not from here so trolling on the board was not much help.
thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
In what area of the Triangle will you be staying? What sort of food do you like best? Atmosphere (fine dining here can be a lot more relaxed than in other areas of the country - all the students). Do you need just one place for one surprise night?
1)Saint Jaques in North Raleigh. Real deal French food and it's great!
2)Second Empire in downtown Raleigh.
Both would be enjoyable choices for an Anniversary get together. Elegant but not stuffy.
ln Chapel Hill you might consider Carolina Crossroads at the Carolina Inn. The kitchen has always performed well in my experience, and the setting is a bit more sedate than some places mentioned. You will be able to have a conversation, something not always guaranteed at some venues.
Also, Fearrington House is a good destination for lifetime events.
Yes what atmosphere are you looking for and where will you be?
Washington Duke Inn
I really like Crook's corner. it does not get the press some other places here do, but I think if I wanted to really show someone a place that you would ONLY encoutner in this area of the country, Crooks Corner.
Lantern is also amazing.
